Expo 2020 Dubai will run until March 31, 2022.
In order to access the Expo Media Centre (EMC), media will need to provide a negative PCR test taken within 96 hours starting February 24. This is a change from the previous requirement of 48 hours which commenced in December.
Media can take a PCR test at the World Parking, Dubai Exhibition Centre North or Expo Village testing facilities. These tests are free of charge with proof of a valid media accreditation pass.
As the largest major global event of its kind to be held since the start of the pandemic, Expo 2020 continues to maintain robust Covid-19 measures, ensuring a safe and exceptional event for all attending. These include the mandatory vaccinations of all Expo and International Participant staff, volunteers, contractors and service providers, while visitors aged 18 and above must present proof of vaccination or a negative PCR test taken within the previous 72 hours, the organisers said.
Mask-wearing – indoors and outdoors – for visitors, as well as all staff and participants, remains mandatory.
The health, safety and wellbeing of everyone continues to be the highest priority, and organisers remain committed to working with participants to welcome visitors to a safe and exceptional Expo.
